After trying the Speights Alehouse in another location we were delighted to see another on arriving in Invercargill. We were not disappointed by the staff or the food at this restaurant either. Absolutely delightful food!

The receptionist at the Quest said this was the best place to eat with very friendly staff. She as not wrong. Cheeky and friendly staff from entering. I had pork belly and husband had lamb. Both outstanding dishes.
